Taylor Dean did a wonderful job with this story. From beginning to end it kept me reading and wanting more. Holly was so loved by Gabe and Angela. She awoke from a coma wanting to know where her dear husband was and wanting to see him. Angela was right there for her and so was Gabe. He was so kind and loving to her and even though she knew there were parts of her life that she could not remember she knew that she was loved dearly by her people.
The memories came back one night when Holly opened her door to a stranger. Then everything that was done with so much love and caring was almost destroyed. Holly went through so much at the hands of her first husband that she blocked them out when she was almost killed but went into a coma instead.
This was a wonderfully told story that will keep anyone wanting to read more and more to find out what will happen next. The abuse was horrible and it is sad that there are so many women that live in it everyday. If anyone can read this book and it help them get out of an abusive relationship that would be wonderful. A love story told in the best way.
I loved it from start to finish.

If you're a romance fan, then most likely you will love this book. Definitely a clean romance, there is no smut here. Do be warned that some might find the parts with physical abuse disturbing or triggering. This book has a happy ending, but unfortunately those that suffer with domestic abuse don't always get their happy endings. I think it was an interesting look into how someone without "people" deals with abuse. Perhaps, this book will encourage a person who is being abused find the strength to seek help. I lean more towards paranormal romance than regular contemporary romance, hence the 4 stars.

Where to start with this amazing book? I have found a wonderful new author. Taylor Dean is officially on my favorite author list! I have never read her novels before and I have missed out. This is one of those books you can't put down. I lost many hours of sleep until I finished it. I can't stop gushing about it! It is hard to review and talk about without giving so much away. You find out bits and pieces of Holly's life as she does. You fall in love with the character. The flow is perfect with the flashbacks of her life. I would recommend this book to anyone.
~A special thank you to Taylor Dean for gifting this book to me for a fair and honest review.~

Every once in a while a book comes along that tugs at the heart strings, for me that book is I Have People.
Holly Sinclair has awaken from eight months in a coma after a traumatic accident that caused her extensive injuries, in fact the doctors considered her recovery a miracle of modern science. She has amnesia and the only memories she has is that of her loving husband Gabriel. Frustrated with the missing pieces of her memory and her inability to recall what happened to her, Gabe recreates their dates in an effort to make new memories and a fresh start for their relationship. But things aren't always what they seem: an attentive Gabe and best friend Angela are holding back information on the traumatic accident which causes Holly to become suspicious .... and when she does regain her memory of the accident, the shocking revelations changes everything.
I Have People is a poignant story of love, hope, domestic abuse and redemption. Author Taylor Dean weaves an emotionally charged tale about one woman's life story and how she recovers from a traumatic experience to discover the warmth of being loved and having people who really care about her. Written in the third person narrative, the author draws the reader into the life of Holly Sinclair as she recovers from a traumatic experience of domestic abuse. I was fascinated with the progression of Holly's growth: from her naivete when she awakens from the coma, to her frustration at her memory loss, to the recovery of her memory and strength to stand up for herself. You can't help but feel for Holly and what she's been through, her story will take you on a roller coaster ride leaving you emotionally spent.
Author Taylor Dean does a wonderful job of thoughtfully writing about a very serious and sensitive issue that unfortunately does occur in some domestic relationships. The storyline is told in the present day with a flashback to two years prior, and the intriguing twists and turns keeps the reader engaged as Holly's story unfolds. With realistic and complex characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; and various settings and a multi-layered storyline that is rich in detail and vivid descriptions, I Have People is a powerful and compelling read.
I Have People is an amazing story that will bring out all the emotions, and will stay with you long after the words have been read.
